Some days are days of chores - outside the home chores - but when our home town is as pretty as it is, that is a pleasure too.
We had a few things to do today like buy a new tray (Nigel dropped it the other day and it shattered), buy some grains from the health food store and pay money into the bank (which happens to be right across from a Starbucks) so we headed off to town and then to the quay for a little walk on my newly released ankle!
I had the MRI results from the physio yesterday (though I still have a consultant appointment to come) and she said I could start to wean off the boot! YEY! I can walk a little every day and build up, alongside the exercises I have to do to build strength. So all good there then.
Poole quay was lovely and I snapped another couple of pictures for the snap challenge including this one
We came home and did another chore we have been dreading. A job for very very spoilt cats. A while ago we bought a new brand of cat food - a healthy option, allergy free as usual for Kira - and stupidly - oh so stupidly - we mixed it with the brand we usually use to wean them in gradually. Huge mistake. There was no way either of them were eating the new food. They would carefully sift out the new from the bowl, spit it out around their bowls, or anywhere really, and eat the stuff they knew and liked. We tried it day after day after day and nope - no way were they eating it. So we bought more of the old and used that, leaving a huge - and I mean HUGE container full of the mixed food. Today was the day. We put the old broken tray to use and we sorted the food out! Piece by blinking piece. Nine full tray fulls. We took out the dark brown circles they didn't like and kept the little flakes and barrels and hearts that ARE acceptable to the most spoilt cats in the world. It took forever. Even now I can't believe we did it.
I also managed new scrapping this afternoon - another for the Shimelle Challenge - this time Beautiful View. I scrapped two very old pictures of one of the most beautiful views we have ever seen in the world - Moraine Lake.
Today I am thankful for
- a lovely home town
- a horrid job completed
- chores done
- scrapping time
And just because I saw them and they were cute - Lego cats ... I need these in my life
